Paul Pogba sets France record in 2-1 win over Ivory Coast

Paul Pogba set an impressive record for the France national team in last night’s 2-1 win over Ivory Coast.

The Manchester United midfielder became the youngest player in history to reach 90 international appearances for France, at the age of 29, which is a marvellous achievement.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry previously held the record.

Pogba has yet to decide his future at club level and it looks like he is stringing United along before leaving on a free at the end of the season. A number of clubs are said to be interested — even Newcastle United and Aston Villa — but it will take crazy wages to convince him to sign.

Real Madrid, PSG and Juventus are all likely destinations — but do any of these teams need Pogba right now? Do they think he is capable of showing more consistency than he has shown at United?

I’m not convinced and I don’t really care either way. It’s clear Mino Raiola and Pogba were planning a free transfer this summer for some time.
